About Lucia RubiniLucia Rubini was born in Bari in 1968. She attended the Academy of Fine Arts, guided by the inspiration works of Leonardo Da Vinci and her arts professors Labianca and Antonini, among the most famous in France. After a lot of experiences she moved to Boston, US, to finish studies at the Art Academy of Boston.
In collaboration with local galleries, she planned her first exhibition and sold her first artistic works. In 2010 she opened a personal gallery: the "Rubini Art", an exhibition center and a place of education for young modern art lovers, with numerous subjects, such as the equestrian environment, historical figures, biblical and a maritime landscape.
The success following the opening of the gallery, Lucia led to the creation of the "Van Vogue" show in 2014, arousing great interest among people furthest from the art world. The project was born from the idea to merge the feminine beauty with the harmony of artistic technique, to show it not only to one of the largest American cities, Boston, but also to one of the most important artistic Italian cities: Bari.
